Stitched with vibrant colours, stories and teachings by dressmaker Amanda Grieves Bradburn, the jingle dress Awasisuk is now on display in the Museum’s Community Corridor.
“When the news of discovering unmarked graves began to circulate, I saw a good deal of unhealed hurt and intergenerational trauma surface in many people in my community,” Amanda says. “Awasisuk represents the healing journey and its importance, not only for ourselves but for the future generations as well.”
The Community Corridor provides a platform where community members can share their work and lead meaningful dialogue on human rights. Thank you for generously supporting human rights conversations and opportunities for healing like Awasisuk.
